Somero Church

The Somero Church is built on a small hill. Georg Theodor von Chiewitz designed, styled the red-brick church. The church was built in1859 .
Church organ and the Zachariassen organ were made in the year  1880 . Organ changes were made ​​in 1960 - and 1970's. The player is a valuable example of a Finnish history.
 This card which Ella sent me depicts the Lutheran Church of Somero. The Chaple is to the left. This picture must have been taken more than 20 years ago. Now there are many trees between the Church and the river.
Lutherans are Christians and they are found throughout the world!  They represent the world's third largest block of Christians and are the oldest Protestants.  There are nearly 70 million Lutherans living on every continent, speaking hundreds of languages.  In the USA alone there are more than 12 million Lutheran Christians.
